How Republic is run

Republic is a democratic organisation, governed by an elected board of directors.

The board meets every two months and is responsible for setting the broad strategic direction of the organisation, scrutinising the campaign work carried out by staff and volunteers and looking after issues of financial management and governance.

The day-to-day running of the campaign is delegated to the chief executive officer, who is supported by two part-time staff.

The board of directors

The board is the executive body of Republic.  Its members are elected at the Annual General Meeting, which is usually held in the early part of each year.  Directors can also be co-opted at other times of the year.

The board delegates some responsibilities to the Finance and Compliance Committee, which is primarily made up of directors and the CEO.  Meet the team
